Fair warning: this is a commercial announcement.
My latest near-future thriller -- this time dealing with medical nanotechnology -- was released on October 13. A new book's release is always exciting, but this release is doubly noteworthy. That's because SMALL MIRACLES is this month's "SCI FI Essential" title.
To top off that endorsement, here are some early quotes:
"I was royally entertained. For the duration of the book, I was convinced I understood nanotechnology."
— Larry Niven
Hugo and Nebula award-winning author of Ringworld
" 'Miracle: an event or act that breaks a law of nature -- especially one attributed to a deity.' Well the miracles in Edward M. Lerner's new book may be small ones but they fit the definition in that they definitely aren't natural -- which could be a problem. When God makes a miracle it is a wonder; but a man-made miracle can as easily be a blunder. We are only human after all ..."
— Brian Lumley
Grand Master of horror and author of Necroscope
— Eric Flint
NY Times bestselling author of the Ring of Fire series
"Lerner shows what it might be like to live in times of artificial intelligence. An entrancing and frightening novel."
— Jerry Pournelle
NY Times bestselling coauthor of Escape from Hell
If you're in the Washington, DC area, I'll be signing books on Saturday, October 17 and Sunday October 18. The Saturday signing is at 11:00 A.M. at Capclave 2009 (Rockville, MD) -- I'll be doing panels all afternoon at the con, too.

And if any of that has made you curious, here's what the publisher has to say and here's an early review from SFrevu.com.
